The first question for you would be have you been expressing milk from the time he was born ? The body has a natural milk production response for a few days after birth and if milk is not removed then it shuts down. To relactate you will need to express about six times a day for the next few days. I would recommend reaching out to a Lactation counselor who can help with relactation.

Never feel guilty that you are not getting milk. It happens to a lot of people and no milk production is natural, supporting with medicine you have tried but beyond that u can't do anything. As Sonali mentioned were you giving him your expressed milk when he was in the NICU?? if yes or no however nothing much can be done when it is stopped but if you are able to feed even 50ml then try meeting lactation counselor if no milk then just go as you are doing now.

don't feel guilty darling.. d more u will take tensing.. d more milk supply will be less.. n there is no harm in giving ff... u can also consult a lactation counselor if u want..

What location are u based in ? We can advise lactation counselors accordingly.

even when my baby was in nicu i didnt get that much milk n now it has stopped..too tensed becoz of that.
